Overview
A classic Civil War memoir, " Co. Aytch" is the work of a natural storyteller who balances the horror of war with an irrepressible sense of humor and a sharp eye for the lighter side of battle. It is a testament to one man s enduring humanity, courage, and wisdom in the midst of death and destruction.
Early in May 1861, twenty-one-year-old Sam R. Watkins of Columbia, Tennessee, joined the First Tennessee Regiment, Company H, to fight for the Confederacy. Of the 120 original recruits in his company, Watkins was one of only seven to survive every one of its battles, from Shiloh to Nashville.
Twenty years later, with a house full of young rebels clustering around my knees and bumping about my elbows, he wrote this remarkable account a memoir of a humble soldier fighting in the American Civil War, replete with tales of the common foot soldiers, commanders, Yankee enemies, victories, defeats, and the South s ultimate surrender on April 26, 1865."
